Open your run box up and type in this command.

ping www.google.com -t (Damn these stupid tags just copy paste the entire command there)

This will maintain a steady ping. Report back on what it seems to be averaging.

Also if you want run a line test and post up the results. You can run it here.

Ping yahoo.com and your going to find your good ping rates.

Trust me, I'm getting 45-30ms from Google and I'm on Verizon Fios.
Yahoo I get a 21-23ms. So Big difference.

And if you think you have bad Ping, when I play AoC they have Latency spikes where they hit 4800ms-10000ms latency which is VERY bad lag.

Try Yahoo and it should make you feel good.

ok guys what exactly is ping ?

dont wonna sound like a noob or anything i "think" its the time that a packet takes to get from you to a server and back ???

could be way off there maybe not a packet but a ping or just a request from a server ??

if so what realistic effects does having a high ping have i mean 60ms is milli seconds right ?? thats not really that high and realisticly if were talking browsing speed then surely 60ms wont matter when the average website probably contains a few 100 kb of data ??

im prob way off can someone explain
